Bar Keepers Friend
Bar Keepers Friend is frequently regarded as the world's best cleaning product. Used to clean showers, stainless steel, tubs, toilets, brass, copper, ovens and pots, it removes hard water stains, rust, tarnish, soap scum, grease and more. The original canned scouring powder product has been manufactured and sold since 1882. It was invented by a chemist in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
What began as a polish for brass rails in turn of the century taverns, Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser & Polish has become the premium house-hold cleanser. Using a non-bleach, plant based cleanser plus mineral scrubbing micro particles, BKF attacks tough stains from two directions. The oxalic acid, found in plants such as rhubarb, attacks hard rust and lime stains at the molecular level, breaking up the bonds that hold them together. Once those bonds are broken, the mineral micro scrubbing particles move in to finish the job, polishing as they remove deposits. This 2-stage method of cleaning is why Bar Keepers Friend is so popular for cleaning nearly every surface in your home, garage, patio, or workplace.
